The Oklahoma Sooners football program announced some shocking coaching news Sunday night.
Longtime Oklahoma assistant coach Kale Gundy, who had been with the program for more than two decades, announced his resignation.
Gundy revealed on Twitter that he said a word during a team meeting that he should “never say”. The assistant coach explained that he was reading a distracted player’s iPad and said the word inadvertently.
Still, Gundy felt the need to step down.
Oklahoma coach Brent Venables confirmed Sunday night that he has sadly accepted Gundy’s resignation.
The college football world is still quite shocked by Sunday night’s news.
Gundy, the brother of the Oklahoma State head coach, had been an assistant at OU since 1999. He was a player for the Sooners from 1990–93.
Oklahoma has already decided on an interim replacement for Gundy’s position.
The 2022 college football season begins in less than a month.
